Finnish label Lion Music has announced that it won’t sign any more artists until, er, politicians manage to stop music piracy. They could be waiting a long time. “No demos or masters you send us will be considered for release. We will NOT listen to any mp3 files or check out your websites and we will NOT respond to questions regarding releasing your album,” says a posting on the company’s website, which includes details of existing Lion-released albums’ download stats on one of the larger BitTorrent sites. “Our demo policy will not change before our politicians have stopped the P2P sites.”
